    Introducing: Detectives Don’t Sleep - The Dulcimer Murder

    Introducing: Detectives Don’t Sleep - The Dulcimer Murder

    From Noiser, Detectives Don’t Sleep is the new whodunnit podcast. Step beyond the police tape to shadow the real detectives who worked history’s most intriguing cases.
    In this taster episode, we’re in 1913 following Chicago’s first female detective, Alice Clement, as she gets called out to the slums to investigate the death of a young woman. At first glance, it looks like the girl died of typhoid fever. A tragic but all too common ending for Chicago’s impoverished population. But Detective Clement has a hunch that there’s more to the story. Especially when she spies a dulcimer - an expensive stringed instrument - perched in the corner of the victim’s squalid apartment. Taking out her magnifying glass she sees something incredible. The strings….have been poisoned… But who would go to so much trouble to kill some poor girl? Answering that question will take everything Detective Clement’s got. She’ll go undercover and use her incredible powers of deduction to unmask a killer hiding in plain sight. It’s a case that will take the nation by storm. Solidifying Alice Clement’s reputation as one of America’s greatest sleuths.

    Bonnie and Clyde Part 3: The Final Ride

    The Star-crossed killers are hurtling towards their final date with destiny. But they still have one thing left to do - come good on Clyde’s promise of revenge on the facility that shaped his future - Eastham Prison. 
    Their daring raid will bring the bloodhound Texas Ranger, Frank Hamer, down on them. As the net finally closes in, their celebrity reaches new heights - their exploits get wilder and the stories get stranger, and the truth becomes harder to see.
    One thing is for certain - this is the final ride for Bonnie and Clyde.

Amazing

Great series but yeah, the narration is a bit much

Love this series, just like all the other Noiser shows I’ve listened to. The host’s narration however is a little over the top for me. It won’t stop my from listening, but it’s a little irritating. I wouldn’t go as far as saying the host should be replaced, it just needs to be dialed back a bit. I absolutely love the narrator on “A Short History of” and several others.

Amateur Hour

I am a fan of this series, but not Real Outlaws. It sounds like an AI or a bad fan fiction. The narrator does not help. His British accents for the Krays episodes was hard on the ears.
